      Guy was 3-betting his BB 50% which i'm sure is a leak. I like my hand IP vs this guy so decide to call.

      He cbets so small so I call IP to reevalute
      when he checks I think i have the best hand but bet to protect.

      Fine to call 3-bets in this spot with reads?

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Well, the problem is that there are only few hands which you are making to fold on turn which are better. They are like AQ/AK. :P But obviously it's better to take a stab there than let him win with those hands.

      Sometimes it's still the case that I even Check behind and take a free showdown since my Ace will be very often ahead and at the same time we wont make him better hands to fold. Maybe sometimes even not a Ace high.

      Best Regards.
